    I have a Dell M4800 which has both a Windows 7 sticker on the palmrest and a Windows 8 Pro sticker underneath, so I had assumed it would have a Windows 8 Pro licence key in the BIOS. Having obliterated the previous partitions and installed Windows 8, the machine will not activate, and using rw everything, I see there is no MSDM tab under ACPI. Is there any way I can get licenced Windows onto this machine without going out and buying it again?
